My Grandma's a Ninja - German translation (2016)


My Grandma's a Ninja was one of NorthSouth Books' first titles to be written by an American author (me) and first published in the U.S. rather than being written by a European author and subsequently translated to English.

The only change during the translation process was that the main character ("Ethan") was renamed "Oskar"!

Thanks to the German version, this book won "The Golden Cowbell Award," organized by school librarians in Switzerland and voted on by Swiss students. One of the requirements is that the book be available in a Swiss national language (German, French, Italian, or Romansh).
